Having problems with your Dell Latitude D800 Notebook ?

Dell latitude d800 laptop wireless connecting to internet

\015 Bgt this laptop 2nd hand.Am clueless about laptops.Would love to connect to the internet without plugging into my embarq dsl modem which I use for my PC. Didn't think this laptop had a network card. However by unscrewing a compartment #C on the back I see a networking miniPCI by Intel model WM3A2100 which has little copper looking wires going from one place to another .Am assuming this is a network card hardwired in..but I am a DUNCE to all of this. Seems a long time ago, someone told me to check into the C drive for something and was told I didn't have a network card. I have noticed that many programs, etc have been deleted from this laptop probably before selling. Who knows? I am going buggy trying to figure out what I need to do to set this up. I do have a wireless router installed at my PC, installed by my dgtr so she can use her Dell Inspiron laptop to connect to the internet which works great for her when she is visiting. I am stumped and am not savy with all of this. Any chance someone could give me some baby step easy to understand directions on what I need to do? Have been sick and spend much time in bed and would really love to be able to use this laptop connecting online. OH this laptop is running windows XP 2. Also I note this does not have microsoft word which I need tho my Dell PC which is windows XP has..how can I get MS word on this laptop?? THANKS AHEAD so very much! Diane\015

Answers :

First thing to ask you -- if the computer has a wireless card in it, there is going to be a small switch (generally located on the left hand side of the computer (I mean literally the side) that toggles on and off. If you have a wireless card inside the unit, there is the switch (it turns wireless capability off and on). Do you have such a switch?
